Rebirth


I love Orchids. It is always joyous when an orchid that I have been faithfully watering, watching and waiting over surprises me with the gift of rebloom. Some never do grant me this gift. Those orchids are like ungrateful children. Others are so gracious; they bloom and rebloom, with nothing but a weekly watering.
This orchid surprised me this week by blooming after 3 years of dormancy. Maybe it was because I kept watering and kept the faith or possibly I finally have the light and heat requirements right. Either way it was a nice Christmas gift.

And what a beauty it is. I say it's patience & perserverance. Probably good to take a photo to remember them by. :)
